Since the first Transformers movie in 2007, there have been five Transformers movies in the series (not including the upcoming film Bumblebee.) All directed by Michael Bay, the Transformers film franchise has been met with poor critical reception, but huge box office numbers. Combining action, sci-fi, comedy, and obvious product placement, the best Transformers movies deliver on exactly what the fans want: robot-on-robot fight scenes. What do you think is the best Transformer movie in the entire series?
